Summary

A White House advisory panel on information technology is urging President Clinton to turn back the clock and recreate the funding strategies that nurtured the Internet and other developments that now fuel the U.S. economy. The panel's overall message, that the United States needs to do more to retain its lead in the field, is expected to prompt top Administration officials to push for more funding in the upcoming 2000 budget request. But its suggestion that the National Science Foundation (NSF) should play the leading role is likely to be more controversial.
